OUKITEL K6000 Plus | Appearance, Design, Build Quality
First impression from phone general shape and appearance where nothing but excellent with a metal frame and external design similar to the Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro phone. We are talking about a completely different phone based on the new 64-bit Mediatek MTK6750T Octa-core Processor, which is considered to be a mid level type, suitable for average and above everyday usage.
In this new model OUKITEL embedded the fingerprint sensor inside the home button instead in the back of the device, what makes it a lot easier and accessible to operate. Very Similar to Samsung phone design, This device comes with both illuminated keys and also virtual type (software), what as a user I personally like and prefer. Another positive aspect of this phone is the speaker grill location on the side of the device, and not on the back so when you put it on a surface, such as a table the sounds coming out of the speaker are not “interfering” by objects. And one last feature worth mentioning, is the LED notification light that also works well and turn when someone sends you an email, IM ,Missed Call etc.

This phone is powered with Mediatek MTK6750T Octa-core Processor, operating in clock frequency of 286- 1500MHz equipped with an ARM Mali-T860 MP2 GPU that should provide decent gaming performance for most hobbyists. It comes with 4GB of RAM along with 64GB EMMC Flash. Specifications that are almost identical as the ZTE Blade A2 Plus, but with additional 1GB of RAM and double the internal storage space. AnTuTu benchmark scores, results of the two devices were very close.

The phone is Android Nougat 7.0 OS (64-bit) powered. It has a lot of new useful features built inside of it, among of them is the ‘Eye protection‘ that lets you adjust the screen brightness to warm yellow color and minimize eye damage when looking at the screen in low light dark environments. Another useful one is the ‘ScreenRecord‘ function that lets you capture and save all screen activities as a video file.

OUKITEL K6000 Plus | Features
- WiFi – Worker well without any problems.
- Sound – Reasonable Sound quality with average volume level in terms for loudness.
- Microphone – Preformed averagely.
- GPS – Although preformed well with accuracy of to 1-2 meters, I had somewhere half mixed success and had to use a 3G/4G connection to get better Accuracy and precision during navigation. This problem is very noticeable when trying to navigate in offline mode, when you are solely depend on GPS signal. That being said, From my testes using ‘Here Maps’ and ‘Google Maps’ in offline mode without any internet connection the orientation of the maps during navigation was not great, and sometimes didn’t rotate the map properly according to my walk direction because device is missing a Compass sensor. Navigation with Waze software was the only App that did worked well and precise.
The Phone comes with four types of sensors: Accelerometer, Light, Proximity and fingerprint sensor embedded inside the home button. And now for the less positive things about this phone. For some reason OKITEL didn’t add a Gyroscope and manometer (Compass) sensors. Without the compass you will not be able to use the phone for as type of digital compose for outdoors navigation and when using the GPS in offline without internet connection it will effect the orientation of the maps and will be less precise.
Most users will not use the Gyroscope sensor, that measures rate of rotation around the x,y and z axis and has few applications, but not commonly used and needed as the Compass sensor.
Maybe one of the main highlights of this phone. OUKITEL used an excellent FHD 5.5 inch 5 point touch screen that display images very sharp and provides good brightness. When you first start to use the phone can feel the high responsiveness of the screen just by touch which greatly affects user experience when performing basic tasks such as surfing websites, typing, chatting with IM Apps and so fourth.

In optimal light conditions the rear 16MP and front 8MP cameras performed reasonably well with fast auto-focus, responsiveness, producing slightly above average quality pictures. Flash light wasn’t bright as I initially thought, but after more testing it performed pretty well under competently dark environments.

You can charge the built non removable 6,080 mAh Lithium-Polymer battery very fast using provided charger. Based on MediaTek Pump Express technology providing maximum current of 2A, where in standard conventional chargers the maximum current range is normally between 1A-1.7A .
Screen on time
With the screen brightness set manually to %48 and remaining %20 of battery work time I managed to get 5h : 54m of on screen on time in moderate use. During this time, the phone was partially in standby mode and later used for some web-surfing, running YouTube and WeChat, including some GPS navigation Apps testing.
Testing Charging Time
After completely discharging the phone battery I connected the charger trough USB Voltage / Current Meter Tester and simply used a stopwatch application installed in another phone to measure charging time until it exactly reached 1 hour: 40m. According to my results, I can confirm that the battery was fully charged to %100 with a voltage ranging between ~9.80-9.88V and a current of 1.95 Amps as specified by the company advertisement.

OUKITEL K6000 Plus | Benchmark
For a mid level smartphone, the OUKITEL K6000 Plus provides good features and great build quality. The Phone main highlights are definitely the excellent 5.5″ touch screen and it’s massive 6080mAh Battery that can last about ~1-1.5 days (depending on usage type).
The main disadvantage this phone, is the lack of a Compass sensor that damage GPS navigation experience, unless you will use an internet connection to improve navigation accuracy. If you are not willing to compromise on this important feature that is needed for map rotation during navigation, then I recommend that you consider buying a better brand in the same price range with less problems such as Xiaomi, also available in TinyDeal store Here.
